Day on Great Divide Basin

Day 1 Leave Rawlins

Breakfast at Penny's and walk the 1 1/2 miles to get to trail. We cut thru the cemetery: all very peaceful. Tried to "use" the BLM office but they didn't open until 0745. Tried to persuade staff to let me in but they hold to the rules very closely so I have to improvise. Trail parallels 287. Sandy and dirt paths. We speak with two WY Conservation officers near the Meadow Ranch. Helpful on validating our location. We use our first water cache at 1649. However, Why Wait is having difficulties walking. She tilts noticeably to the left and this continues through out the day. Pace is much slower than her normal rate. We try to id possible reasons w/o initial success and ambulate onward. We reach our second cache at the intersection of CDT and Bairoil Road. Discuss prudence of Why moving on and conclude it prudent to resolve her unbalance before she continues.
